Critical Survey


Information for Authors

Manuscript Submissions

Please review the submission and style guidelines carefully before submitting.

The editors welcome submissions of articles in the general fields of modern and early modern literature and culture—especially articles that indicate a clear familiarity with current critical and theoretical thinking. Submissions should generally be between 5,000 and 7,000 words in length, though exceptionally strong longer pieces will also be considered. Submissions should be e-mailed to the editors at bloughrey@mac.com and gh@herts.ac.uk

To submit poems for consideration, please send three or four to criticalsurveypoetry@gmail.com.

Manuscript Preparation

Submissions should be e-mailed as Microsoft Word files and may initially be supplied in any internationally recognized academic style. After the article is accepted for publication, it is the author’s responsibility to convert the text into the journal’s house style, available here. Each submission must be accompanied by a short abstract and a brief author biography including institutional affiliation and contact details. 

Please refer to the Berghahn journal contributors' page for general information and guidelines regarding topics such as article usage and permissions for Berghahn journal article authors.
